Engine Yard and New Relic Partner to Accelerate Enterprise Rails Adoption

Bring New Relic's enterprise-critical Rails application performance management to Engine Yard's Ruby on Rails deployment platfor

SAN FRANCISCO and MENLO PARK, Calif., May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Engine Yard, provider of the leading Ruby on Rails deployment platform, and New Relic, provider of the leading Ruby on Rails application performance management solution, today announced a partnership aimed at accelerating the adoption of Ruby on Rails in the enterprise. As part of the partnership, Engine Yard will give its customers exclusive complimentary access to New Relic's introductory level of service, New Relic RPM Basic. New Relic hosts its Rails performance management solution on an Engine Yard private cluster.

Engine Yard customers Matchbin, The Hockey Pool, RedeParede, and Hutz.com are among the more than 500 companies that have signed up to use New Relic RPM to help their Rails applications perform and scale. With this new, value-add service, Engine Yard customers can see performance metrics in real time so they can identify problems and fix them fast.

College Tonight (http://www.collegetonight.com/), a social networking website promoting social interactivity among college students, graduate students, and alumni, was among the first to take advantage of New Relic RPM for their website, which runs on Engine Yard clusters.

Jason Schutzbank, Executive Vice President and CTO, College Tonight, commented: "The addition of New Relic RPM to our Engine Yard service has already paid off, eliminating an application performance issue we were facing. When we recently announced our partnership with celebrity Lauren Conrad, Engine Yard helped us prepare our site for the additional demands of increased traffic. Engine Yard takes the guesswork out of managing our Rails applications and now with New Relic, we can tune and optimize them as well."

The partnership with New Relic is the latest to support Engine Yard's mission to provide stable, enterprise-level Rails application deployment services. Last month, Engine Yard partnered with Lighthouse (http://sera.lighthouseapp.com/) and GitHub (http://github.com/) to offer its customers complimentary bug tracking and repository services, respectively.

"Ruby on Rails is quickly moving from proof-of-concept to enterprise standard in many organizations. With our deployment services, Engine Yard is helping drive this sea change in the market," said Lance Walley, CEO, Engine Yard. "The New Relic partnership raises the bar on the quality and value of Engine Yard's services. The ability of our customers to quickly and easily pinpoint and resolve performance issues is critical to enterprise-level Rails deployment. We look forward to working closely with New Relic to help accelerate the adoption of Ruby on Rails in enterprise organizations."

New Relic RPM provides deep visibility into Rails application performance. A graphical interface shows performance metrics in real time as the application runs in production, allowing developers to quickly identify performance bottlenecks and to drill down to see their root causes. New Relic RPM installs in seconds as a Rails plug-in, which means companies can start collecting critical performance data right away.

"From our own experience utilizing Engine Yard, we know first-hand the Ruby on Rails expertise and innovation Engine Yard brings to their customers," said Lewis Cirne, CEO and Founder, New Relic. "Offering New Relic RPM within Engine Yard's infrastructure gives developers the peace of mind they need to deploy applications in production. This partnership advances both companies' mission to help make Rails developers' lives easier, enabling their web and on-demand applications to perform and scale."

Both Engine Yard (booth #501) and New Relic (booth #512) will demo their technology this week at RailsConf 2008, May 29-June 1 in Portland, Oregon. (http://en.oreilly.com/rails2008).
